India was in all sorts of trouble when Suryakumar Yadav came on to bat in the middle. Yadav stitched a good partnership with Shreyas Iyer and brought back some hope into the Indian squad. However, Iyer could not last long, and wickets kept tumbling from one end.
On the other hand, Suryakumar continued his best knock in T20 history. He became the second Indian after KL Rahul to score a century for India while batting at number four. He also broke Glenn Maxwell’s record of most runs by a number four batter in T20Is. However, his effort was still not enough for India to win the match. India lost the match by 19 runs despite Surya scoring 117 off 55.
